The Washington Post

Amazon Reporter
The Washington Post is seeking an ambitious and resourceful reporter to cover Amazon, the ecommerce giant that is reshaping huge swaths of American life along with the consumer experience. Amazon is now America’s second-largest private employer. Its core business has upended retail, drawing scrutiny from antitrust regulators, and has redefined the American workforce, drawing concern from workers who complain of conditions on the warehouse floor. But Amazon is more than online shopping. Amazon Web Services helps power the Internet — as well as hosting sensitive government data — while Alexa manages smart homes and Ring security cameras scan the streets. The company is a major player in online streaming and video games, owns Whole Foods and is rolling out more brick-and-mortar stores under its own brand. Through it all, Amazon is capturing an unfathomable amount of data about virtually every aspect of its customers’ lives.
